Is Hogan’s Heroes making a comeback? Deadline reports a sequel to the classic TV show is in the works.
The original sitcom launched in 1965 and “centered around a group of Allied POWs imprisoned in a German prison camp, led by U.S. Colonel Robert Hogan, who secretly used the camp to launch Allied espionage missions.” The cast included Bob Crane, Werner Klemperer, John Banner, and Richard Dawson. The series ran on CBS through 1971.
Now, Hogan’s Heroes co-creator Al Ruddy is developing a sequel to the 1960s series that will follow the descendants of the original characters. A network is not currently attached, but Rough House Pictures is producing alongside Village Roadshow Entertainment Group.
